Teaching our children to recite the Quran correctly is so
important as Muslim parents. Tajweedthe rules of Quranic recitation, should
be done in young children, so that mistakes do not need to be corrected in
later years.

However, we all know that trying to teach Tajweed to young children
can be challenging. Young children do not want to sit in formal lessons for too
long. The rules can seem complicated and the terminology over-whelming. 

So how
can we teach young Muslim children the rules of Quranic recitation? Through
Nursery Rhymes or Nasheeds!!!

Teach Tajweed To Children with nursery rhymes

We all recognise how quickly our children retain the songs
they hear. Whether it’s from school, or from the TV, songs have a way of
sticking in the memory of children. Even now, I can remember the words to songs
I sang as a child.
Tahera Akther, the founder of Olive Tree Study Support, has
created a collection of rhyming songs to help teach your children the rules of
tajweed.

They are so much fun! Honestly, your kids are going to love
them!

The tracks are named Mysterious Makharij, Stretchy Madd
Tabeei, Best friend meem & noon (my personal favourite!), Jumpy Qalqalah and
Friendly Meem Saakina!

Despite having no music, only drums with child vocals, the
songs are ridiculously catchy! They are so easy to repeat and easy for children
to memorise.
In fact, they’re a little difficult to get out of your head!

I love the idea of using rhyme to help young kids remember
their Tajweed rules. They introduce your children to some of the basic rules of
Tajweed and, insha’Allah, spark a passion for the study of Quran in later
years.

We’ve been listening to these songs whenever there’s a quiet
moment in our homeschool day; whilst the kids are colouring or playing, or
whilst they’re having a snack. It’s a great way for parents to teach their
children the rules of Quranic recitation, without them realising its happening!

They can listen and learn whilst….

Playing,

And eating lunch!

After listening to these songs, I would recommend them to
children aged 4- 9. To get the most from the CD, they should have had
some exposure to the rules of tajweed previously, so they can understand some
of the terminology used.

They were perfect for my 4 and 6 year-old boys, and my
little baby girl seemed to enjoy dancing around to them too! …We all did!

This collection of Tajweed Nursery Rhyme songs is available to buy as a CD or MP3 download. If you’d like to listen to the songs, you can hear
a sample of the nasheeds on their website. Click HERE to listen!

It is such an honour to share these Tajweed nursery rhymes with you. I genuinely love them! They’re fun, upbeat and so catchy! I often find myself singing them when the kids are asleep! 

These great quality children’s songs are a fantastic way to
introduce Tajweed to, and inculcate a love of the Quran in, young Muslim
children. 

I would recommend this CD to all madrasas, as well as any parent
eager to encourage their children to recite correctly from an early age.

You can purchase your CD or MP3 Download HERE

Do you have any resources you love?
